Agent: Cowboys re-sign Anthony Spencer

One of the top remaining players in free agency has re-signed with the club for whom he’s played his entire career.

The Cowboys have signed defensive end Anthony Spencer to a one-year deal, agent Jordan Woy said on Twitter on Saturday.

The 30-year-old Spencer had microfracture surgery on his left knee in October. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cowboys “hope” Spencer will be healthy when training camp starts. Spencer played in just one regular season game before the knee surgery, which ended his campaign.

The Cowboys’ first-round pick in 2007, Spencer has notched 363 tackles and 32.5 sacks in his NFL career. Two seasons ago, he recorded career-highs in tackles (95) and sacks (11).

Spencer (No. 67) was the highest-ranked unsigned player in PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100. With Spencer now back with Dallas, Packers tight end Jermichael Finley (No. 74) is the top unsigned player in PFT’s rankings.

    That photo is Jay Ratliff, and not Anthony Spencer. Don’t worry, that’s not Arian Foster, though.

    Melton, Spencer, Crawford, Selvie, Hayden, hopefully a good draft… and suddenly it’s not looking so bleak.

    Once no other team signed him, I knew Jerry wouldn’t be able to resist getting Spencer for a lower cost. He is older, not healthy, and probably not a good fit as DE in the 4-3. Not feeling good about this move.

    He has been working out at the Valley Ranch they would know when he is healthy!

    Its the best signing Cowboys have done, in FA this off season, in a disappointing time for them.

    Uh oh looks like the Cowboys will have a defense this year! Watch out Redskins Giants and Eagles….

    It’s always gonna look bleak as long as Jerry’s there.

    In an article I read not too long ago, it stated that Rod Marinelli had been watching tape of the seahawks D and he wanted to emulate the rotation of D linemen to keep them fresh throughout the game. By no means have the Cowboys added any stars, but with low risk/high reward contracts for melton and now spencer hopefully the Cowboys can catch a break and one of the many newly signed guys can be productive. I still want to see us draft the best available DT or DE in the first round.

    You mean minus all those championships he brought to us in the 90’s correct?!? Can’t win the SB every year… I know it’s been a little while, but you must have faith… and if you’re a true Cowboys fan, you will.

    You mean all those championships that Jimmy Johnson brought to Dallas. And what does Jerry do, runs him out of town.

    Limmy ran his own self out of town. There would have been no Jimmy without Jerry.

    Get over Jerrah. All owners are idiots. They don’t actually play the game or coach a team. Be glad it’s not a Donald Sterling or Mark Cuban running the show. Demand accountability from players and coaches, not suits.

    Well if you’re going to give all the credit to the head coach back then, you need to put all the blame on the head coaches since then… No credit given to Jerry when they did win should mean you can’t place blame on him when they don’t.

    Anthony Spencer has always been a solid player very happy to have him back, you pretty much know what your getting he is comfortable with the team and system for the most part (they switched last year but he did all the off season workouts and training camp before playing one game and getting hurt) it’s better than not knowing what your getting from some market value hack.

    Better be `incentive laden`, and I mean extremely. Because roll-over cap MEANS something.

    They still suck as long as Romo is the quarterback.

    The photo is indeed of Spencer, not Ratliff.
